Take Control of
iWeb: iLife ’06 Edition

Steve Sande

This product has been discontinued.

Apple’s iWeb aims to help you build a Web site quickly and easily, but if you’re stuck on the basics or unhappy with amateurish results, turn to Steve Sande for assistance. In Take Control of iWeb, Steve provides step-by-step instructions for building an iWeb site and uploading it to .Mac or to your own Web host, and you can look over his shoulder as he works in iWeb’s templates with a designer’s eye. Steve teaches you the best ways to make basic iWeb pages, including blog, podcast, and photo pages (via integration with other iLife applications), and he covers topics that go beyond the basics.

Are you using a newer version of iWeb? This title is about iWeb ’06/iWeb 1. However, iWeb ’08 and iWeb ’09 editions are available.

You’ll learn how to create eye-catching graphical effects, encode podcasts and videos for use with iWeb, edit graphics so your site loads faster, make image maps, and even set up an online store. For those with multiple sites or multiple Macs, Steve explains how to edit one site on two Macs and how to store multiple sites in multiple iWeb files. Pick up your copy today!

Q: Do you have an ebook that covers the version of iWeb that came with iLife '08? What about iLife '09

A: Yes, we do. See Take Control of iWeb: iLife '08 Edition and Take Control of iWeb '09.

Does this ebook cover MobileMe and iWeb?

Sorry, the ebook does not cover MobileMe. The .Mac service switched its name to MobileMe in July of 2008, and along with the switch made a few small changes to the way it interacts with iWeb. Although we are keeping this ebook for sale in order to help people who might still be using iWeb '06, we have not updated it for MobileMe. We think that readers will find it easy to work with the ebook, so long as they are aware of the .Mac-to-MobileMe change. The iWeb '08 and the iWeb '09 editions of the ebook do cover MobileMe.
